    I made some research yesterday, on the net, about TV tuner PCI card (or anything else) for osX. I Did find some products,. but, not very much. I cant really beleive taht there is no TV tuner, affordable, for osx ? maybe i missed somes ! if not, is there any other options like buy an video IN device and use an external tuner (video player, for example) ? i would really love to listen to TV while working on my Mac (emac for now, forget it, but G5 ou dual G4 soon).. Do you have some interesting solutions for me ?

    I've heard very good things about theFormac Studio TVR. I personally am going to get one once my G5 ships!

    this is what has gotten some of the best reviews. but if you are getting a a g5 you may want to wait and see what pcix brings to the market.

    Gone but not forgotten.
    The Formac solution produces a higher quality recording, due to the use of DV technology, in contrast to eyeTV.

    it does look good untill you price new tvs? they are almost giving them away these days.
